Visualization and Mapping

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.

The Tutor/Mentor Connection incorporates various forms of visualization to illustrate its ideas and to support the involvement of others in helping tutor/mentor programs grow in many locations.

Our maps are created using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and are intended to be used by leaders to help tutor/mentor programs grow in all high poverty areas of big cities like Chicago.
